YES 👍 or NO 👎
However, people who are “very happy” often hold religious beliefs and practice their faith.
The poll surveyed 1,019 adults between March 1-13, 2023. A stunning 30 percent ranked themselves at the lowest level, saying they were “not too happy.”

More from Breitbart:
The percentage of Americans who consider themselves very happy remained remarkably constant over the 45-year period between 1970 and 2015, never surpassing 38 percent and never dropping below 28 percent…
The highest correlation for people saying they are “very happy” is belief in God, with 68 percent of this group declaring belief in God to be “very important” to them.
By contrast, among those who are not happy, fewer than half (42 percent) say faith in God is very important to them.
Along with belief in God, the “very happy” overwhelmingly value strong relationships, and about 67 percent say marriage is very important to them, independent of their own marital status, compared with 43 percent of respondents overall.
